Injury latest on De Bruyne as Gundogan emerges as Man City’s best FPL attacker

Man City 2-0 Aston Villa

  • Goals: Bernardo Silva (£7.4m), Ilkay Gündogan (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Rodrigo (£5.4m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.1m)
  • Bonus points: Rodrigo x3, Gündogan x2, João Cancelo x1 (£5.8m), Ruben Dias x1 (£5.8m), B Silva x1

KEVIN!

Pep Guardiola and owners of Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) alike will be sweating on his fitness after the player was forced off in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

There were already concerns about the Belgian’s condition going into Wednesday night considering he was given a rest during the final 20 minutes of the 4-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace.

De Bruyne was able to start for the 13th straight Premier League game but he lasted just 58 minutes in the second match of Double Gameweek 19.

And Guardiola only heaped further concern on De Bruyne’s owners by confirming post-match that the injury could be muscular.

“Kevin De Bruyne put his hand on his leg, so I have the feeling it will be something muscular. These things happen with this amount of games.” – Pep Guardiola

It is, of course, too soon for either Guardiola or Fantasy managers to know the full extent of De Bruyne’s injury and the player is likely to have a scan on Thursday to assess the damage.

It is worth saying that there is slightly longer than usual for De Bruyne to recover considering that Manchester City’s next Premier League match does not take place until next Tuesday.

There is also an FA Cup match against Cheltenham Town on Saturday which will allow Guardiola a chance to rest De Bruyne.

Crucially, it means we will have at least two pre-match press conferences for the manager to update us on the Belgian although not many in the Fantasy community will enjoy being at Guardiola’s mercy in a media briefing…

HAPPINESS IS A WARM GÜN

Ilkay Gündogan (£5.5m) extended his impressive run of form for Manchester City on Wednesday evening.

His fifth goal of the season, and second of Double Gameweek 19, helped the German international to a third double-digit haul since Gameweek 13, more than any colleague across the same period.

In total, Gündogan has racked up 54 points in his last seven matches (7.7 per game) and, with West Bromwich Albion (away) and Sheffield United (home) up next, interest in his signature is sure to increase.

His new advanced role has been well-documented of late but what helped him get on the scoresheet against Aston Villa was his place in the penalty pecking order.

With a flagging De Bruyne removed from proceedings after 58 minutes, it fell to Gündogan to dispatch a 90th-minute spot-kick after Gabriel Jesus (£9.1m) had forced a handball out of Matty Cash (£5.0m).

And if the Belgian is set to miss a few games, then Gündogan’s stock can only increase further, especially if he has a stronger claim to penalties than Jesus and Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m), who he shared the pitch with during stoppage time against Aston Villa.

Raheem Sterling (£11.4m) had gone off by the time Gündogan put Manchester City 2-0 up but his troubles from the spot this season have been well-documented.

SILVA LINING

For the second time in three Premier League matches, Bernardo Silva (£7.4m) was selected to occupy the false-nine role for Manchester City.

With Jesus consigned to the bench for the second time during that run, Guardiola’s preference for a more fluid front-three comprised of midfielders is becoming clear.

Judging by his pre-match comments, it sounds as if that outset may continue until either Jesus or Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) can start finding the net again – when given an opportunity, that is.

“Strikers have to score goals. The way we want to play does not depend on strikers, centre-backs, full-backs. We have a special way to play, sometimes we need strikers, sometimes we don’t.” – Pep Guardiola

Silva is already reaping the rewards of his false-nine role as he scored his first Premier League goal of the season against Aston Villa.

But he went close on other occasions including a well-saved header at the back post in the third minute.

“Bernardo Silva, I said many times, is one of the most intelligent players I have ever seen. He can do everything in every position and he has the quality to score goals too. It’s really good for him and us. A fantastic goal.” – Pep Guardiola

CANCELO CULTURE

The João Cancelo (£5.8m) rollercoaster still had plenty of dips and loop-the-loops in the second match of Double Gameweek 19.

Fresh from a one-point cameo against Crystal Palace, the full-back returned to the side on Wednesday evening, playing in the left-back role initially and securing a clean sheet and one bonus.

That made for an eight-point score for the Double Gameweek while John Stones (£5.1m) and Ruben Dias (£5.8m) enjoyed 27 and 17-point hauls.

But Cancelo certainly had chances to get close to his central-defensive counterparts as he struck the crossbar in the first half, which would have resulted in a De Bruyne assist had he found the back of the net.

And in the second half, the Portuguese international drove through the middle of the pitch and fired an arrow of a shot at the bottom corner before Emiliano Martínez (£5.1m) turned away a certain goal.

It is worth saying that Cancelo was more involved in the game during the first half when stationed on the left-hand side of Manchester City’s defence.

However, he was forced to staff the right-back berth after the 28th minute when Kyle Walker (£6.1m) was forced off with a knock and replaced by Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) – a switch that somewhat limited his involvement.

That said, Cancelo’s chances of starting games and avoiding further benchings could be boosted if Walker faces more time on the sidelines.

“I haven’t spoken to the doctor. If Kyle Walker asks to be out, it is because something happened. Hopefully just a kick.” – Pep Guardiola

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Walker (Zinchenko 28′); Gündogan, Rodri, De Bruyne (Jesus 59′); Foden, B Silva, Sterling (Mahrez 72′).

Aston Villa XI (4-2-3-1): Martínez; Targett (N Taylor 75′), Mings, Konsa, Cash; McGinn, D Luiz; Grealish, Barkley (Ramsey 68′), B Traoré (El Ghazi 68′); Watkins.

    I can't seem to recall the name of the user or website for the spreadsheet that was out in years past that set forth the entire fixture calendars (cups and league, potential doubles etc) fixture difficulty etc. Ranking my brain but coming up empty. Thanks in advance for the help.

    For my simple brain, for DGW BB team, can I think that 60 + 60 (11 DGWs) + 20 BB = 140 pts sort of the expected good score? Which is rather hard to achieve (LiveFPL: BB team avg so far 95pts)?

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yep. Players don't perform as they should.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Doubt many BB teams had 15 DGWers though e.g. Bamford + McCarthy losing their DGWs, Kane, Son

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Of course, but mentally in SGW you'd like to get 60 pts and BB you would try to get 15-20 pts. But DGW happens in tick and fast schedule so then will need to expect less than 60 pts. Bench pts expectation though will remain regardless SGW players.

    3. gogs67
        1 month, 9 days ago

        People make the mistake of expecting every player to play and every player to score when they look ahead to DGW, it never works that way so best to lower expectations and you'll be pleasantly surprised if it goes ok. 4 points per player per game is what I would class as a good haul. Up in the 140's would just be phenomenal and more down to luck than anything else

    4. GS456

      Tough season continues. Went Vardy and KDB for a hit and sold Kane and Son who outscore them. Classic!

      Anyone eyed up any differencials over the next few GWs for those who are ranked 500,000+ like me?

      1. GS456
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Maddison & Barnes may be.

      2. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        One thing I have learned this season is never sell Kane or son. Sold son a few times and he followed up with huge hauls. Kept son this time but got vardy for Kane.. for a hit too! Haha enough said about that!

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Hopefully vardy will do better than Kane next week, but I got a bad feeling..

        2. GS456
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Classic. I Sold son before his 4 at saints too.

      3. gogs67
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I'm looking at Barnes for Soucek, Gundo for KDB, Pereira (Leicester) for Coufal , will have a lot of cash left over from that to shoehorn Augero in to partner Kane when the time comes.
          It might not work that way at all but it's how I'm looking at things now with too much money in the premiums with no returns.

      4. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Any other takers for KDB to Gundo this week? (Stones Cancelo owner too)

        For me, enables a possible Bamford to Kane next week too.

        1. Original - Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Tempted, KDB had to get injured this GW of all Game weeks.

          Want to do a rage transfer.

        2. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I'd do it in your position, but stuck with triple city defence (might not be and thing)

        3. aleksaa2
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Wanting to do the same thing except Adams to Kane

        4. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yeah pretty tempted on the same two moves. But also considering Rashford.

      5. Original - Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Those showing off their 100+ scores? Why? Did we ask you?

        On the other hand, go ahead if it makes you feel good. You've probably had a bad season until this week. 😀

        Bottomed:

        Assuming KDB is injured, best option here please?

        Martinez
        Robertson Stones Cancelo Coufal
        Salah KDB Fernandes Rahpinha
        Vardy Bamford

        Forster Soucek Brewster Ferguson

        1 FT, 0.2 itb

        1. KDB >> Sterling
        2. KDB >> Gundogan (save funds to bring in Son / Kane for someone next week)
        3. KDB >> Son
        4. Save FT, play Soucek

        Thanks

        Is Foden a sell or hold if you own?

        KDB might be managing an injury?

        1. MikeS

        103 with Salah TC Robertson and Wilson left, hopefully can make up some well needed ground..

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I captained Salah too, let's hope so..

      9. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years

        Kane (C) this week? Or play it ‘safe’ with Bruno?

        1. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          If Bruno starts vs Liverpool in cup, he will be rested vs Sheffield.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Hmm good point!

        2. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Bruno will have huge effective ownership this GW
          I feel like it's the perfect game to rest him in if he plays 90 at the weekend though (don't know if any Man Utd fans think the same?)

        3. Warby84
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Liverpool back to form 0-2

          I thought I heard announcers mention how tired he said he was. I might be afraid of a rest vs. Sheffield.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE

          It's tempting, I can do KDB > Gundo, Wood > Kane [C] ... ahh it looks silly 😆

          No.

          It looks a great team, with most players on good fixtures next week. I’d leave WC to the next DGW /BGW

        Current fwds: Antonio, Bamford, Wilson

        7.4 max to replace Wilson. Can't say I'm thrilled with these options, but alas:

        1) Watkins
        2) Rodrigo
        3) McGoldrick (fewer benching headaches, and banks 1.4)
        4) Give him Leeds at home, then reassess

            He's been the my team for longer than I'd like, but, yeah, that's the sensible (non) move.

          KDB->Sterling?

          1. The Ilfordian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Thinking KDB to Gundo? Sterling doesn’t seem to have hit his straps and expensive for the number of points. Seems to be other options such as Barnes/Maddy, Mount.

          2. The Ilfordian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            But see what KDB scan says first

        4. Hryszko
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          KDB replacement....

          1. Gundogan
          2. Sterling
          3. Keep KDB & play Smith Rowe, Dier or Holding?

                Sorry yes. It was in the FFS article

                “ It is, of course, too soon for either Guardiola or Fantasy managers to know the full extent of De Bruyne’s injury and the player is likely to have a scan on Thursday to assess the damage.”

          Why people getting rid of KdB ? Is his injury serious ?

              1 month, 9 days ago

              He's not worth 11.7 million at the moment, half the price gets you the same points as he's returning

                Pep said muscular, he held his hamstring before coming off. So it could be few weeks.
                IT IS JUST MY OBSERVATION.

                  Do you have any medical training or knowledge?

                  In the contract you will get no abuse for being wrong, any transfer is completely my decision. 😉

              Mark's normal team is doing really well this GW with TAA and Salah (c) potentially capable of big returns
              The BB is horrible though!

                  Vs Spurs? Thinking maybe Son better than Salah

                I like Rashford (again) if Bruno plays against L'pool. Cancelo/Sterling maybe?

                    Just putting your score into perspective give that you're underwhelmed

                        Good score, did your insider knowledge from working in the sport industry help?

                        "I work in the sport industry and have a bit of inside knowledge on the villa squad tomorrow. They are going to be naming many of their youth team players on the bench tomorrow and some may even play. From what I've seen they will be quite decimated.

                        People really buying Sterling as KdB replacement. Crazy. He is not even certain as starter.

                          1 month, 9 days ago

                          Far from crazy if KDB is actually out.

                            Why ? He is better when KdB' s playing. He wont be on penalties anyway.

                          not bad luck, just bad managing.

                            Own goals, red cards, missed pens, early injuries and harsh offside calls are not examples of bad management.

                              we're all in same boat. Bad managing.

                                Fair, maybe I'm trying to excuse bad management for bad luck. I've certainly made some bad decisions this season, not denying that at all. But haven't exactly been very lucky either, my points were in the tweet 🙂

                                  yup, i made a lot of terrible decision, but im not blaiming bad luck, only me. GL to you.

                                    You can only blame yourself for a certain amount of it. You cant blame yourself when your player gets sent off/surprisingly blanks against a good team/misses a pen/goal disallowed/misses a lot of chances in a game etc.

                          Lots of bad fortune in there, and maybe because of that, you have reacted in an overthinking manner with some of your moves (Mane over Salah for instance), plus some captain choices.

                            That's a good point.

                        I've just noticed this part of the FPL website:
                        https://fantasy.premierleague.com/prizes/winners

                        It actually shows you the top scoring teams in the GW ignoring fake teams that have just been created and those that use chips

                        Vardy to Kane?
                        I want Kane back in but not sure whether to do it this coming week for Liverpool or wait until week after.

                          I’m looking on how to get Vardy in his fixtures are amazing g

                            I just trust kane over vardy. Didn't think he ever looked like scoring in their last game. But you are right. Their fixtures are decent.

                        Salah, KdB and Bruno. Which expensive flop/faltering premium to deal with first!

                        whats difference between chilwell and bruno "assist" this week? were both not crosses parried by keeper then scored yet bruno gets it but chilwell doesnt?

                          Chilwell's cross wasn't intended for Mount (aimed at Tammy) and so definitely wasn't an FPL assist. Bruno's was deemed to be intended for Cavani (still a bit dubious).

                        I think I may have to seriously consider captaining full-backs from now on. If they're practically guaranteed a clean sheet in a game, then anything on top of that is bonus.
